Landscape as Muse

Season Three - Episode 37

Winter with Jeane Fabb
As a founding member of the art / nature group 'Boreal' sculptor and installation artist Jeane Fabb has long been concerned with the environment and in particular women’s connection to it.

...Our perception of the land is through the forestry industry, the hunters, the fishermen, the ski-dooers, the developers, the politicians. So I'm interested in hearing what the women have to say about the land.

For five chilly days in January, we watch Jeane work atop a frozen lake in Quebec’s picturesque Laurentians. Here she creates an ephemeral work that references the ongoing life-cycles of nature.
